America’s Tragic Problem

Trump is the noxious core of America’s tragic problem, but he would be reduced to being just another serial criminal if the problem didn’t dwarf him in its scope. As Mitt Romney told Romney’s biographer, McKay Coppins: ”A very large portion of my party really doesn’t believe in the Constitution.” For the Republican Party to once again be responsible and honorable would likely require repeated overwhelming electoral defeats followed by its reconstitution by people committed to far higher standards than those adhered to by the Trump cult.
